Today we took a day off to allow everyone a little time to rest. Bryan was especially grateful not to have to do a lot of driving. Tina stayed home from work and we had a great time hanging out with her.
Tante Uschi and Tante Gretel (my great-great aunts) dropped by and we saw them for a little bit. They both live on Mutti’s street. At the end of the visit, Tante Gretel took Bryan by the hand and led him down the street to her house. She told him all sorts of stories, showed him her house and garden, and had a wonderful time talking to him. Of course, since she only speaks German and he only speaks English, he didn’t understand a word of what she was saying! He was very sweet and gracious about it, and we all had a good laugh when he finally broke away about half an hour later. Tante Gretel is 90, very fit, and I don’t think she really believes that there is anyone who doesn’t understand German.
